He / She will also inform you how and where to return the car, go over basic information that is good to be aware of when driving in Iceland and tell you where you are allowed to drive.
If you prefer, it is also possible to take a bus from Keflavik Airport to Hafnarfjörður, Garðabær or the main bus station BSÍ.
